Do you remember learning a song in order to learn the alphabet? Did you ever notice how playing a sport or video game in childhood improved your hand-eye coordination for future life activities like driving a car? Do you remember watching other people do something that you wanted to learn, like cooking or painting, or creating something out of sand or clay, and practiced by copying them? Do you remember how much you learned through games and social activities with your family members and friends?

Play is a vital part of our learning process, and our natural curiosities about how things work also help us to figure out how things can work to help us. Play Therapy services focus on using creative interventions that incorporate an understanding of neurobiological processes and sensory awareness with behavioral activities to access knowledge and skills that may be blocked or suppressed by depression or anxiety and inaccessible through cognitive awareness and verbal processes. Play therapy activities may be used in individual, couple, and family activities to circumvent these barriers and to assist clients in learning and experimenting with new skills and problem-solving abilities.
